InterviewI had a few phone interviews with Haynes Beffel & Wolfeld - the standard preliminary screen. And then an interview with one of their patent agents and associates. The speaker phone was horrible and I could make out 60% of what they were saying (actually only 60% of what the secretary was saying most likely because she was positioned closest to the speaker, and yet the more important other two individuals I could make out about 20~30%) but made my best efforts to puzzle the pieces together based on the context of our conversation. My interview started 15~30 minutes late most likely because of their speaker issue; and when we first began our conversation I could that they weren't in very open-minded moods to begin with. I wasn't selected for a fly-in interview if they do offer it further down the process.
